Former Anambra State Governor, Mr Peter Obi, has emerged as the presidential candidate of the Labour Party of Nigeria for the 2023 elections.
Obi emerged unopposed at the party’s National Convention held in Asaba, Delta State. He emerged after the erudite political economist, Prof Pat Utomi, stepped down for him, saying, “Obi must be allowed to govern this country.”
Peter Obi resigned from the Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, to join the Labour party after the National Consultative Front, NCFront, adopted the Party as its mega party for ‘3rd Force’ stakeholders and allies for the 2023 elections.
NCFront is the umbrella body of the ‘3rd Force’ Movement and Political Alternative to the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC and Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
